We’re preparing to give over some of our gallery window to an artwork created in 1 day by pupils from Scalby School.
They’ll be joining us on Monday to as part of ‘RSVP’ – a one day project organised by Ian Read at Scarborough Museums Trust in which young people will visit Scarborough Art Gallery to see and learn about a particular painting (in this case, ‘Bathers in Sunlight’ by Zdzislaw Ruszkowski, below) and then work with an artist to create a response.
Following on from recent public art projects in which we’ve used vinyl on empty shop windows, we’re going to be using the same materials but this time hands-on with no computer-cutting involved. We’ll be drawing, cutting and slicing to go from idea to finished window in a day. That’s the plan anyway – the window will be available to view for at least a week, possibly longer depending on other plans we have for the space over the coming weeks… The vinyl is standing by, roll on Monday.
